Micro welding, sometimes reffered to as precision welding has been specifically designed for the welding of small often delicate components. The processes and equipment used require the use of heat energy that is in a tightly controlled environment. The micro welding process sets up the weld by depositing fine blobs of weld to the components to be fused. Often the welding bead is no more than .065 and may even go as small as .005.
As Micro welding is a state of the art process that is used for welding small areas. Often the micro weld requires the surrounding area to be minimally effected by heat, requiring precise heating of the weld to only allow proper fusion of the joint.
Micro welding requires the use of miniature TIG welding equipment (Gas Tungsten Arc) that is not much larger than a pen. Micro TIG welding is the latest in tool welding technology. Micro TIG offers superior control of weld placement while maintaining structural integrity with less residual stress.
Utilizing the assistance of arc micro welding it is possible to restore components which are challenging to weld; put together very small parts in to complicated structures , tools involving high alloy material and also repair of costly molds.
Other methods of micro welding utilize lasers. Micro laser welding makes use of tiny solid-state options possessing fractional energy to accomplish the job. Nonetheless, applications which can be incorporated into automated procedures tend to be the most suitable applications for laser micro welding. This style of minuscule welding additionally produces some of the very best qualities for welded joints
